Our experience here was disappointing. We were lured in by the seemingly terrific advertised price and location. The value seemed great...online. But, upon arrival we quickly found the combination of the mediocre facilities, undelivered services, and the disinterested off-island management, leaving us sorely disappointed. With so many wonderful options nearby, we will not return here.

This condo unit served our needs to a tee. We don't like to eat out every meal, so we cooked in the unit for breakfast and lunch, usually went into town for dinner. close to everything we wanted to do, beaches, town, hiking etc.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The place was awesome, the people amazing and the views were spectacular. Air condition worked great, kitchen was stocked to perfection and they also provide detergent for the clothes washer. Would love to go back and would definitely stay here again.

Makai Club is a timeshare with vacation rental management. The unit we stayed in was quite nice with updated interior. Kitchen is well appointed and it includes a laundry in the bathroom.

Came here for one night only. To my surprise husband called ahead to ask for floral arrangment purchase to surprise me for our 3rd wedding anniversary.

I have visited Kauai often since the late 1960's which means I have seen a lot of change on the island. First visited Makai Club Cottages in about 1996 and fell in love with the style and the laid back charm. It has gone through many changes over the years under different managements (mismanagements? indifferent managements?) It is a cottage-style... More

We booked a condo at this location for 12 days and were not disappointed. Customer service is foremost in the care of their guests. Everyone is so friendly and enjoy helping. The one bedroom condo is spacious and nicely layed out and kitchen is smartly stocked with what needed to cook a great meal. Ask for a mountain view unit.

Located on a beautiful tropical hillside, alongside the championship Makai Golf Course, the Makai Club is truly the perfect place to begin your Hawaiian island adventure.Nicknamed the “Garden Isle,” Kauai is often said to be the most beautiful Hawaiian Island. There is certainly something to be said about Kauai’s North Shore, which is home to incredible sunsets, rich tropical foliage, and the breathtaking expanse of the Pacific Ocean stretching out to the horizon. The Makai Club resort welcomes you to experience with us the natural beauty and adventure that we have enjoyed for so long on the island of Kauai. ... more   less
